Publisher's Description

When does giving become religious?


Overview


Money has power. We have all felt it feed our greed or suck like a leech at our souls. In our consumer-oriented society it has to be disarmed, or it will consume us with credit-card debt and gambling addictions.


How we deal with money, according to Tim Stafford in his article on the Anatomy of a Giver, shows something about a person s soul. Each generation must face its response to Jesus challenge in the Sermon on the Mount: You cannot serve both God and money. This study will examine how we can break the power money has over us by becoming generous.
